Your domain is yours for a year (from the date of purchase), but if you have content on it, if you are gone from WA longer than 60 days, your content will be gone too. WA keeps a backup of your website with its content that long.

It is important to backup your site, All in one SEO migration plugin works well. Down load the fine for you have a copy. Then look for a web hosting service where you can put your website. Check their terms. So choose another hosting service and ask for help to transfer your website..

If you cannot pay your membership fee, it is necessary to cancel billing. Scroll way to bottom.

We do hope we see you back soon.

Your domain is paid yearly ($13.99-$15.99 per year) and is yours until your registration runs out. So as long as you pay the yearly fee your domain is yours even if you're not a WA member.

For any websites hosted here, you need arrange alternative hosting for your website before your subscription ceases as you would be locked out the platform, site support back ups are only available for 60 days.

You can never revert back to being a starter.

I also suggest you backup your sites, you can use the AIO WP Migration or Updraft plugins. UpdraftPlus is a premium and highly recommended
Also domain names must have passed the grace period of 60 days.

You will lose access to it until you renew.

I suggest you do a backup and download it to your local hard disk.
